The smbfs stuff is suid root to allow normal users to
mount volumes, it would be nice if ftpfs had this
Maily so I don't have to log in as root to mount junk
every day I guess.
Logged In: NO
Not true. Normal users can mount ftpfs. I have installed it
via automount, it works.
Logged In: YES
I get the error message:
mount: only root can do that
when I run the ftpmount program... I even tried making
ftpmount setuid.... I've never used automount before, maybe
I should look into using that, just another thing to learn
though, which I'm not too wild about... :)
You can do it by putting a line in /etc/fstab, like this one:
none /your_dir ftpfs
gid=1000,root=/users/SL 0 0
(join all that in one line).
Then a user can
$ mount /your_dir
and user with uid 1000 has read & write access.
